Great Russian Nutcracker

Last but not least in an annual trio of Nutcrackers comprising productions by Ballet San Antonio and Paul Mejia Ballet International, Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker packs an extravagant punch with a cast of 40 elaborately costumed dancers, towering puppets, falling snow, roses shot from a cannon and nine hand-painted backdrops conjuring everything from the idyllic Land of Peace and Harmony to a Henri Rousseau-inspired jungle scene. Touring internationally since 1993, the company thoughtfully localizes each performance of the holiday mainstay by welcoming young dancers to the stage as part of its long-running “Dance with Us” program. After training under soloists Olga Aru, Zhanna Golubenko, Olena Nalyvaiko and Mariia Skoruk, selected San Antonio dancers between the ages of 7 and 16 will step into the spotlight as mice, snowflakes, party-goers and snow sprites.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
